Medical Services in Chiang Mai

Sawadee Khrap

Nu was just at McCormick Hospital for his motorcycle accident and I have used Chiang Mai Ram 1 several times,  Here is a great list of Services for Chiang Mai.  but from what I am told by the locals is that: 

Maharaj Hospital  (Suan Dok Hospital)

should be the first place to go. 

Many Expats have told me of the great service they have received at Maharaj and that they also have the best pricing available. 

For example, my friend, Toivo and his partner Thip say;

 “I have (unfortunately) had a lot of experience with them, and have to say that the service has been top notch.  Thip’s stay last week with two Doc exams, two injections, hourly BP checks and a Private room with AC, Fridge, Bathroom, and guest beds was under a 100 bucks USA.  Amazing……  OH, and that included breakfast and lunch for the both of us. 

If you go to the 13th floor of the building with the emergency entrance  (The one nearest Suthep Road) at Maharaj Hospital, you end up in the Special Medical Services Center where lots of people speak English.   For a tour or an appointment, contact Kuhn Kessini at:


phone:  081-681-1616 after 9 AM.”



Here’s some links to a little history of the hospital – and an Expats discussion group on the subject.  And a map  (also shows other Chiang Mai University sites).

I will set an appointment after Songkran to take a tour and set this as the primary hospital we use.


(Ya, that’s right – Songkran will be this 13,14,15th Thai New Year – Sawadee Pee Mai  and the famous “water festival”.  I’ll be at Central Shopping Center to capture the action  – stay tuned for more photos.)

Check out this article on MalwareHelp.org

“Every time you give out your email address on the web, you risk getting your email address abused by spammers. Instead of giving out your private email address, give out a temporary Disposable email address (DEA) which receives the messages and forwards to your private email address or displays it on the providers Website. The spammers will never find out your private email address.”



Doi Saket-Chiang Mai Ladyboy Contest

Sawadee Khrap

Contest-Ladyboy1Here is a great link to the photos of the winners of the “Doi Saket – Chaing Mai Ladyboy Contest”  held April 3rd 2009.

If your interested in LadyBoy Contests then the above link is a great site to follow – too bad it’s only in Thai – but then again we are only looking at the pictures  .


We didn’t get a chance to go but we did attend the latest contest April 5th at Chiang Mai and I will post some shots of the girls there soon.  Also took some video so maybe I can put up a simple video too.

 P.S.  I will have to buy some ear plugs because as usual in Thailand the music was so loud it could be heard for at least 5 blocks – next to the stage you could feel the vibrations in the air – my ears are still ringing.




Chiang Mai Gay Pride Parade 2009 M+, LYC


M+LYCMplus Thailand    

Long Yang Club Chiang Mai

 ——    Sponsors ——  

Should be a lot of fun, although I really feel that there is no need for such an event here as gays, ladyboys, etc, etc are as common and fully accepted as any other group here in Chiang Mai or Thailand for that matter – not like the States.  

We are going to go to the announcement today – more to post later.



MapJack – Your City Online

MapJackClipWOW, here is a site I just saw and it’s amazing.  MAPJACK .   Check it out – and it needs your support to grow.

Here is a snippet ! 

(made using Vista’s neat program they don’t tell you about “snipping tool” – click Start-Run– type snip <Enter> )

I went to San Francisco, down to Bush & Market and saw the panoramic virtual photo of the front door of Ikon, my old office and ten down Geary Blvd to where I used to live before I moved to Chiang Mai. – Beautiful photos !!!!!!!!   . 

 I also took a walk up Huay Kaew Rd in Chiang Mai past Sithana College (Nu’s old school – but back next year) and up to the front door of Hillside4 (our old condo) – just as exciting – You have to see this to believe it.

Here’s what they say about thier site – “Mapjack.com showcases a new level of mapping technology. What others have done with NASA budgets and Star Wars-like equipment, we’ve done on a shoestring budget, along with a few trips to Radio Shack. Specifically, we developed an array of proprietary electronics, hardware and software tools that enable us to capture an entire city’s streets with relative ease and excellent image quality. “  

And BOY O Boy they are not kidding.
